Rachael Ray is teaming up with PEOPLEPets.com for a contest to help shelter animals.

Here’s the lowdown on “Click the Cutest: Rachael Ray’s Shelter Helpers.” Ray wants to help homeless dogs and cats, so she and Nutrish, her charitable pet food, are giving three pet owners the chance to donate $25,000 to the rescue organization of their choice.

All you have to do is submit a cute picture of your rescue pet or pets. PEOPLEPets.com will select the cutest pictures and whichever one gets the most clicks/votes wins. The contest ends on Dec. 23.

The 43-year-old talk show host and chef loves helping animals. On her website, she has a section, Rachael’s Rescue, where she highlights animal rescue organizations.

In an interview with MSNBC.com, Ray revealed the most rewarding part of giving back to the animal community. “At the end of the day, I did something that day to make the planet a little bit better for literally a group that cannot speak for themselves. It makes you feel really good at the end of the day.”

Ray has donated so much to rescues. Her pet food line has given more than $2.5 million for food, medical supplies and treatments for these deprived animals.

    That’s awesome and what not, but…huh? She cooks dead animals–horrifically ‘raised’ and slaughtered animals–every day on her multiple cooking shows but here she is feeling gratified that she is helping make things better for a group ‘that literally cannot speak for themselves’? Seriously, how does she resolve the cognitive dissonance there?

    Rachael, thank you for being an advocate for the Pit Bulls. Our organization rescued the most wonderful “Special Needs” pitty on Valentines Day. He is missing part of his front right leg and the left leg is severely damaged. He was possibly used as “Bait” for fighting as a puppy. PLEASE GO TO http://www.pawswithpride.org and read Mike’s Story. It will definitely warm your heart. And, oh by the way, he will be up for adoption in a couple months, maybe Isaboo needs a friend. http://www.pawswithpride.org. How do we get our organzation entered into the rescue contest?
